Hot, sour and snack-worthy...

Two words describe the basis for my love of Target: Constant evolution. I find something new to love every time I go in there. It's like TJ Maxx, only more stable...

Last night, I went to Target for soap. But the siren calls that come from the aisles beckoned and my RedCard addiction won out. On the prowl for new, orange-stickered and all-around good stuff, I came across a treat with a twist: Hot and Sour Rice Corn Chips. They are part of the line of goodies known as the
Blue Ginger collection created by celebrity chef Ming Tsai. The savory, multigrain snack has all the flavors of the traditional Chinese soup. And they're baked so a bag ($0.99) of them contains just 200 calories and 0.5 grams of saturated fat (6 grams total fat), plus a little fiber and protein. That makes them just about perfect for the occasional snack, in my book.

I've been to two Targets and no luck (Milford, Oakley) Which store did you find these chips?

I found them at the Target in the Bridgewater Falls shopping center, Fairfield Township. One piece of advice I'll give you is to look in the "real food" aisles. With the Asian-themed convenience meals, soups, etc... They were there, not the chip aisle. Happy hunting, and, hopefully, snacking!

All I can say is WOW!!!! I just visited Florida, from Montreal, and discovered Ming Tsai's new line of multigrain chips at Target in Sarasota! They are DELICIOUS!! I bought enough for my whole stay, and went back for more to bring home in my suitcase! I LOVE the Barbecue and the Hot and Sour flavours the best. But the Hot Tamari are delicious as well! Healthy and crunchy and YUMMY! Sooo, the question is - WHERE can I get these in Canada??? - Meryl (Montreal)

Some larger grocers will special order products for you. It's often just a matter of asking them! See if they can get them for you. Let us know!
